colorado the bloodshed in the middle east is, confusing divide but centuries old. tells us what we need to know. >> when we watch the news and see reporters talking about the conflicts that are playing out across the middle east, we hear a lot about fighting between the sunnis and the shiites, the two main sects of islam. but many of us have no idea what the difference between the two groups is and why there is so much friction between them. so let's take a look at some of the history and the geopolitics to get a sense of what is really going on. there are 1.6 billion muslims
10:21 am
across the world. roughly 85% of them are sunnis. the division began after the death of the prophet muhammad some 1400 years ago as a disagreement about who should succeed him. the sunnis felt that abu bakr a close friend of the prophet ought to be the next muslim leader. shiites claimed that muhammad anointed his son-in-law as rightful successor. the sunnis won out but a split was born. that rift was spend when ali's son was later killed by the ruling sunni troops an event which the shiites commemorate every year. fast forward more than a thousand years the situation is worse than ever. according to a poll by pew research some 40% of sunnis don't even regard shiites as real muslims.
10:22 am
but there's more than theology at work here. perhaps even more important is geography. 100 years ago around the time of the first world war the middle east was carved up in a british pact called the piko agreement. but europeans had little interest in understanding religious and ethnic intricacies when they divided up the region. still these arbitrary borders became the blueprint for today's map. the shiites were divided primarily among iran, iraq and lebanon with off-shoot of shia islam in syria. this area has come to be known as the shia crescent. sunni muslims ma make up the bulk of the population of other countries in the region with pockets of shiites scattered among them. as you might expect problems arise in countries where both
10:23 am
sect vying for power or one group feels depressed. in syria a sunni majority has been ruled for the last 45 years by alloy minority. in iraq, the sunni minority ruled over the shiite majority for decades after the u.s. invasion saddam hussein a sunni was overthrown and shiite government took over. that government preceded to marginalize the sunnis and now some of the those disenfranchise the have gone on to form the islamic state or isis. as you just heard isis along with al qaeda group. osama bin laden was sunni syrian president is alawite and iranian are shiites as well which helps explain why iran has gotten involved in the conflict in syria. where does america stand in all
10:24 am
this? traditional he the u.s. is strongest allies in the region has been sunni powers, saudi arabia egypt jordan. but now the u.s. is pursuing a nuclear deal with shiite iran working alongside shiite in iraq to try to destroy isis. washington still supports saudi arabia which is currently bombing iranian-backed shiite rebels. confused yet? one satirist has this map. what can we conclude? at the end of the day it's important to remember that the majority of ordinary sunnis and shiites do not hate each other and both groups share the same core tenets of is almost. in between catholics and protestants and fighting and bloodshed that we're seeing across the region are less about religion than they are about
